but remember something about the actual threshold. chuck schumer and nancy pelosi, this summer suggest ad million dollars be the mark for which people begin to pay higher tax rates, not 2 a $50,000. so i think the president definitely stretched his definition of millionaires and billionaires by putting 250 rate income level as that rate but he is getting extension of unemployment benefits he wants as well. so he certainly outmaneuvered us on this one but the real irony here that this whole process was born out of deficit reduction. now the reports are it might add to the deficit. that is counter intuitive. gregg: or at least the 800 plus billion in new revenue would be wiped out by $800 billion into l new spending. it is dead-even and not a nickel goes to deficit reduction. kirsten, if that happens, won't the american people say, hey, wait a minute, wasn't this whole thing supposed to be about reducing the deficit? >> no, they won't. this is fundamental fun political point the republicans seem incapable of understanding. for all their claims this is what the country is obsessed with this

a consensus in the middle. does john boehner need nancy pelosi in order to get anything passed? >> reporter: yes, absolutely. no question about it. that became incredibly obvious when he couldn't even get his own republicans to effectively save them from themselves and at least have some political cover by voting to keep tax cuts in place for everybody except millionaires because they said they wouldn't help him with what they call a political ploy. i think that's true but actually talking to people on both sides of the aisle here, because the ball is now in the senate -- the senate's court, the feeling is that if they can kind of break the dam in the senate and if something actually passes, you've already seen over the past two days house republicans saying that they hadn't said before, if the senate passes something, we'll take it up. and if that's the case, the sort of betting is that with the help of the majority of the democrats, probably most of the democrats and maybe, you know, a few dozen or more republicans, that's how it would get passed. but, candy, it's still a big if, as we ju
